Blend the salt, flour, baking powder and shortening until crumbly with fork or pastry blender. Add milk and mix well.
Put out on well floured surface, knead 10 times. Roll out 3/4 inch thick and cut into biscuits.
For square biscuits press dough into 8x8 inch pan and cut with knife into 6 biscuits. Try different size cans for round biscuits. Cut both ends out of can.
